Dr. Nader will discuss the experience and full development of the Self through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique. This session is open to anyone who practices Transcendental Meditation or its advanced programs.
Explore science, consciousness and the furthest reaches of human potential during this special course. Dr. Nader, an MIT and Harvard-trained neuroscientist and distinguished Vedic scholar, will lead this weekend of self development and inner experience for Meditators, Sidhas or TM Teachers who would like to apply for an Advanced Technique of Transcendental Meditation or who already have an Advanced Technique. This weekend starts with the Afternoon of Knowledge on April 13 at 2:00 pm and continues until Sunday lunch.
Dr. Nader is a medical doctor trained in internal medicine, psychiatry, and neurology, with a PhD in brain and cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He was a Clinical and Research Fellow in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Assistant Director of the Clinical Research Center at MIT.
He conducted research on neurochemistry, neuroendocrinology, and the relationship between diet, age, behavior, mood, seasonal influences, and neurotransmitter and hormonal activity, and on the role of neurotransmitter precursors in medicine. Dr. Nader is the author of many original scientific publications and books on the relationship of mind and body, consciousness and physiology. Dr. Nader’s interest to explore the full potential of not only the human physiology, but also the human mind led him to investigate and study ancient and modern techniques of self-development.
For many years, he worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who first introduced Transcendental Meditation or TM® to the world in 1958, and who emphasized the scientific understanding and validation of Transcendental Meditation and other aspects of Vedic Science, the world’s oldest tradition of knowledge. In recognition of Dr. Nader’s achievements and profound expertise in modern science and Vedic Science, Maharishi gave him the title Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam (MARR). As Maharishi’s successor, Dr. Nader oversees the global administration of non-profit TM organizations in over one hundred countries.
